John Stewart on Michael Sam

Late night host John Stewart took some time on his show Monday night to discuss the public “coming out” of former Missouri defensive line player Michael Sam.  You can refer to my tweet of the week with Donte Stallworth with his reaction to reports that teams may find drafting Michael Sam to be “too distracting.”  The ever brilliant John Stewart put another spin on it, by highlighting some of the controversies that other NFL players have brought to their teams.

Okay I get that. No pro team wants the type of controversy that having a gay player is going to cause.  If he had just been convicted of DUI vehicular manslaughter, or obstruction of justice in connection with a murder, or had been accused of sexual assault, or screamed the N-word at a concert, or killed a bunch of dogs and buried them in his f***ing backyard. You know, NFL material.
